iPhone, iPod USB charger
USBFever.com today launched a USB Universal External Portable Charger that serves as a rechargeable battery for Apple's iPhone, iPod, and other USB-capable devices. The portable device charges iPhones and iPods via a dock connector, and works to power other USB-enabled devices including mobile phones and PDAs. The charger ships with 10 adapters that enable it to work with more than 80 percent of current cellphone models, according to USBFever.com, while LED indicators reveal battery status at a glance. An on/off switch prevents accidental power leakage when not in use, and the device charges via AC power which enables users to plug into any standard wall outlet.
